Portugal At Its Worst - Jan 5th, 2011
There is an atrocious and inhumane situation of cruelty and abuse at the camara in Leiria, 100 km north of Lisbon, where they are controlling the animal population by starving to death the animals under their care and protection. They are locked in cages or kennels and left to rot. Photographed on or about December 22, 2011, this has come to our attention via email and by a person who has been able to photograph what they saw. (Typically, if you try, you will be stopped from entering municpal kennels if you have a camera with you or try to take photos). In this situation someone has managed... and now there is evidence of this animal abuse at the hands of the Portuguese government that can be made public ...and it must stop. Visit the website home page or under "special features and stories" where we will update any and all information we receive. Pease try to publicize these photographs, information and the location as much as your are able.
